Hey Admiral -- Nice job with the map!
I make a color copy of the Benchmark page, highlight the route, then take a pic and add to the ride report. Kind of low tech, but fairly easy and works well. Really places things in context. Plus, if any inmates are really interested in a similar ride it is very easy to grab Benchmark and have a very good start.
If I'm in a new area I often take just the photocopy page from Benchmark with me. Much easier than taking the whole book.
Really enjoyed your pics from this ride. My favorite:
Riding direct from the house has its benefits -- all riding time, no trailer, etc. But taking the bike via truck/trailer definitely increases the range. So far, I've done very little trailering. May have to do a bit . . . we'll see.
A bit surprised to see the reservoir so low. I thought Idaho and parts north had a better snow winter than Utah and the southern Rockies. I guess it's dry everywhere. Even without your text I thought the boat ramp was an airstrip, perhaps for some guy's private cabin. Fly in from Hollywood . . .
As always, nice ride report!
